Gustavo Martinez on SoundBetter

Bass player for many Latin groups in Colombia and Brazil for the last 10 years. Ready to record electric, upright, fretless or baby bass (for salsa). Live performances with Mauro Castillo, Charlie Cardona, Manolo Lezcano, Nelson Faria, Jósean Log, playing different styles of music from Latin America like salsa, Brazilian music, pop, latin jazz.

I offer to record electric, upright, fretless or baby bass (very unknown but very common to play salsa), and give a special taste to your song. My musical background is a mixture of salsa, latin jazz, pop, reggaeton, brazilian music, which gives me the ability to adapt to many styles and rhythms

In 2013, while living in Bogota, I was part of Mauro Castillo’s band, a renowned salsa singer from Colombia, up to 2015

In 2014 I played with Porto Rican singer Manolo Lezcano (August 2014) and with Colombian singer Charlie Cardona (November 2014), one of the most important salsa singers from Colombia.

In 2015, I played for Mexican singer Jósean Log at a private event in Colombia.

Since 2016 I live in São Paulo / Brazil, where I’ve worked with different artists and groups (pop, rock, Brazilian music, salsa) from the city.

In 2018 I was part of the college’s Big Band and had the opportunity to play with renowned Brazilian guitarist Nelson Faria. That year I also recorded 3 singles for pop singer Juliana Franke.

Since 2019 I’ve played with different salsa, reggaeton, and latin music bands from the city. I am bass player at Batanga & Cia. a group which combines Cuban and Brazilian music.
Right now (2024) I continue working with different artists and groups where I play electric, upright or baby bass, depending on the situation.
